Accordance 9.5 Brings Dynamic Interlinear and More

The fact that people are still blown away by the features we introduced in Accordance 1.0 is a testament to how revolutionary a program it was. Seventeen years later, we haven't stopped innovating. We haven't even slowed down. More cool stuff is right around the corner…

That's how I ended my most recent blog post last week. Today, I'm pleased to announce that some of the "cool stuff" I alluded to has arrived: Accordance 9.5 is here, with more ridiculously cool features than can reasonably be expected in a point-update. Better still, it's free!

What's so great about Accordance 9.5? The feature that's generating the most excitement is the new Dynamic Interlinear. With a click of a checkbox, you can view any grammatically-tagged Greek or Hebrew text in an interlinear format, or any translation tagged with Key numbers in a reverse interlinear format. That's cool, but the thing that makes the Dynamic Interlinear truly dynamic is that you can mix and match any tagged or keyed text in an interlinear view, as well as show or hide information such as lemma, part of speech, parsing, and syntax.

Interlinear Flexibility

Set up an interlinear to show translation differences, or one to help you see Greek textual variants, one to offer translation help without helping you parse, and another to offer parsing help without showing an English translation.

Interlinear English

Once you design an interlinear you like, you can save it so you have instant access to it. It's incredibly powerful and flexible, and it works with all your existing tagged and key-numbered texts!

Cool as it is, the Dynamic Interlinear is just one of the many improvements in Accordance 9.5. Check out the new features page for details. Or better yet, download it and start playing with it.

I love the interlinear, but I can't get it to print out.

Is that an omission or licensing issue?

Or am I too much of a boofhead to figure it out?

Wayne: we just didn't get round to implementing printing or exporting yet on this new feature. For now you must be content with a screenshot.

I can hope for that feature in Accordance 9.6!

Simply wonderful job done with the dynamic interlinears. Was wondering if/when the LXX would have the option to add English or Hebrew tagged text to its interlinear functionality?

Then again, I don't know if you can link up the Hebrew or English with the LXX seeing how (I think) they have different numbering systems with the English following the BHS. This is also why the keynumber/tagged text highlighting wont work with the LXX. But do still wonder if there are any plans of a sort for this?
